The construction of the church of the Holy Great Martyr Demetrius began on April 22, 1998, with a break during the war years (September 1998 - June 1999). Patriarch Pavle consecrated the foundations of the church on November 15, 1998, while on November 8, 2001, on the feast of Saint Demetrius, he consecrated the crosses for both buildings. Next to the church, there is an accompanying building with a bell tower and the necessary technical rooms. The top of the bell tower dome is located at a height of almost 32 meters.
